NASCAR Sign Removed from Uptown Charlotte Office Tower

The massive NASCAR sign atop the office tower adjoining the NASCAR Hall of Fame in uptown Charlotte is no more.

It was removed last week and replaced by a sign reading “Five Fifty South,” the new name for the 20-story office building at 550 S. Caldwell St.

The NASCAR sign’s removal is part of a larger change in branding at the site known as NASCAR Plaza since it opened in 2009.

Though the logo is gone and the name changed, most of NASCAR’s operations at 550 South will remain.
